Thinking of purchasig a luxe 2.0...

Alright, the wife gave me the go ahead and I think I might order a luxe 2.0.

I was wondering if there was anything I needed to do in order to run it. What I mean, I have a 50/4500 ninja black carbon tank, can I just hook that to the gun and air it up like I do my axe? I dont have to get an adjustable reg do I? or change the shims? I'd like to just be able to switch the tank back and forth between the axe and luxe 2.0....

anything else I might need to know?

You can switch the tank back and forth without problem. Luxe is a great gun, just make sure you get some freak inserts

ya, im having a hard time choosing. its so much money that you want to pick up the right high end. it seems as if the luxe is the top though.

The first piece of advice I would give is to stick with well known and established brands. I shot MacDev for a long time and their guns are pretty nice but getting parts was a ***** when something unusual would go wrong.

As far as the major brand high ends go, they all have something positive to offer. The Luxe has the best ergonomics in the game IMO, is sturdy, smooth, quiet and ridiculously gentle on paint. I love mine. Best marker I've ever owned by far.

It's not the most efficient marker around and it's not low maintenance (like most spools it's best to lube it every 3-5 cases). If that's what you are looking for, an Ego11, Victory or G6R might be right up your alley.

Have you ever shot a luxe? I suggest you try one out before you jump right into it... you're talking about dropping $1700 on a marker you don't know anything about.

I have never shot one. I have however held one out at the field. I love how quiet they are. I believe I'll be happier with the luxe over the geo 3. Those are the only 2 I am considering at this moment...

well the luxe will make you very happy; if u like spools. IT has the points you stated and as u brake them in and tune them they only get better. if your looking at the geo3 vs a luxe, id recommend holding and shooting both of them,ive only got to put a pod thru a geo3 but i but id pick the luxe over it for a few reasons. I despise where they put the little purge thing in the front of the gun it just bugged the hell out of me, the gun seems very quite when your getting shoot at but from behind it seems pretty loud (idk y), lastly the gun kinda bounces when you shoot it almost feels like a victory when you shoot it; because of this it doesn't have the same feel that your axe has when you shoot it (but that is more or less preference), lastly the luxe is a gas thru marker so u wont have to mess around with macro lines or deal with that special fitting the pops uses, it does go bad and from my experience pe doesn't want to give u more lol. so really if your looking into a luxe pick one up it will not disappoint you.

I shot both of my guns today to compare the two. Both the luxe 2.0 and geo3 shoot very smooth. It's hard to say what I prefer more since my luxe is my baby and super broken in and smooth and the geo is brand new with about a case thru it. The luxe has a great feel to it, perfect spacing and the trigger is money, it's super smooth and fairly efficient (8pods/hopper 68/4500) and with the feather touch its very nice and easy to maintain. As for the Geo I loved my 2.1 but hated the bulky ego10 frame on it. So the new frame is a excellent upgrade and the grip is amazing. It's very smooth fresh out the box. Can't wait til it's fully broken in, the gun itself is much lighter than the luxe and at the moment will probably get used over the luxe for the rest of the season. Both guns are well worth the money and have their ups and downs. Best way is try to shoot both and see what you prefer. Any questions lemme know!

You'll love it. The 2.0 was my first luxe ever owned/held/shot everything. It's been my killer all season and shoots unbelievably. Fresh colors too. Enjoy it man!

I would buy used just to say a few dollars. They can be had at $1100 shipped or less with little to no wear.

While I agree, id rather just pay what I did and know it was mine first and not some asshats. Once you get into that kind of money, for a marker, a few hundred is trivial.... I can't find a 2.0 used for that price of 1100 either, so hats off to you if you did.
